Casting the Mold of Female Body and Identity: Reinterpreting Biographies of Exemplary Women
Volume 2, Number 3, September 2003
by Wu Weihe
Wu Weihe and Bai Chongmin's series of works entitled National Sacrifice is based on the text of the Guang Lienü Zhuan (Biographies of Exemplary Women). The Guang Lienü Zhuan is just one among many texts meant to “clarify female instruction and make womanly virtue evident,” including Instructions for Women (Nüjie), Historical Maxims for Women (Nü shizhen), Analects for Women (Nü lunyu), Inner Teachings (Nei xun), and Examples of Female Success (Nüfan jielu).
